NEIT Offers Paramedic Technology Program

Licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Non-Licensed Individuals May Enroll

East Greenwich, RI – Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the college will offer a new Associate in Science Degree program in Paramedic Technology beginning October, 2015. This new program prepares individuals for careers as pre-hospital care providers for individuals needing medical attention. Students with an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) license, as well as those individuals who need to obtain an EMT license, may apply.

Paramedics work in the fast-paced world of emergency medicine in rescue vehicles and emergency rooms as well as in doctors’ offices and other health care facilities. Paramedics focus on quality healthcare by providing for the needs of their patients while advocating and educating patients, families and communities to take proactive measures to ensure a healthy lifestyle.

The Paramedic Technology program has been designed to offer non-licensed students the opportunity to earn an EMT license in a separate preliminary quarter. These students must then successfully complete the EMT licensure exam by the third quarter in order to continue with the Paramedic Technology program. Throughout the curriculum, students engage in clinical and laboratory experiences to complement classroom learning. Graduates of the Paramedic Technology program are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician paramedic level exam (NREMT exam).

Sherman stated, “New England Tech’s Paramedic Technology program provides enhanced training to licensed EMT’s. These individuals may now earn an Associate in Science degree in Paramedic Technology affording them the opportunity to later pursue an advanced degree in Health/EMS Management or other health sciences.”

NEIT Announces Three New Programs

New England Tech is now offering three new associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in response to the growing needs of the ever-changing labor market, demonstrating once again NEIT’s commitment to employer-driven education. The new programs are as follows.

Paramedic Technology is the newest addition to NEIT’s health science programs.  This Associate in Science Degree program prepares licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) to provide care for patients. Paramedic Technology provides entry-level opportunities for students to pursue a career as pre-hospital care providers.  Paramedics work in the fast-paced world of emergency medicine in such settings as rescue vehicles, hospitals, home health care, long-term care, healthcare clinics, public health, and outpatient care. They are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician paramedic level exam. Throughout the curriculum, students engage in clinical and laboratory experiences to complement classroom learning. Classes will begin October, 2015.

The hybrid Criminal Justice Bachelor of Science Degree program was developed for public safety professionals. Designed to be convenient, relevant and flexible for the working professional, this program offers fully online courses but also combines online activities with face-to-face classroom and lab experiences. Candidates for this program must have criminal justice experience including either an Associate in Science Degree in Criminal Justice or college credit equivalent towards an Associate Degree, along with work  experience in law enforcement, public safety, corrections, security or military service. Applicants with fewer college credits, but who have substantial criminal justice experience, may request a portfolio review to assess their eligibility for the program. The first cohort of students began this program in the Spring, 2015, quarter, with the next group beginning this fall.

The fully online Construction Management Master of Science degree program is set to begin in the Fall 2015 quarter. Candidates for this master’s level program must possess a Bachelor of Architecture Degree or a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture, Architectural Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering, Civil Engineering Technology, Interior Design, Construction Management, Planning, Business, Finance, or Management or a degree in a related field from an accredited institution. Individuals with significant professional experience may also be considered in lieu of an appropriate degree and will be evaluated individually. Candidates with no professional experience or prior education in the field may want to consider the college’s Bachelor of Science Degree program in Construction Management.

The online format program is designed for a broad spectrum of busy working construction-related professionals seeking to advance their careers through the combination of advanced technical courses and an integrated management core.  The curriculum blends modern construction management theory, best-practices, and technical skills with the contemporary business management principles that drive 21st century organizational performance.
